Merkel says 'deep differences' with Erdogan remain

Merkel says 'deep differences' with Erdogan remainGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel said Saturday that “deep differences” remain between her and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after they met on the sidelines of the G20 summit. Turkey’s sweeping arrests of alleged state enemies after last year’s coup attempt and a dispute centred on a NATO base “are developments which I of course raised that show deep differences,” Merkel said. Berlin-Ankara relations have been fraught, deteriorating sharply over Turkey’s mass crackdown after the failed putsch against Erdogan last year and a host of other civil rights controversies.
